XRS2 Stick Reader

(Excl. 20% tax)
Add Blue Tooth Printer:

The XRS2 stick reader is the ideal data capture instrument for your electronically tagged livestock. It’s suitable for cattle, sheep, goats, alpaca and other farm animals. One of the most useful features of the XRS2 is a large 2.7”, easily readable, colour LCD screen, which works well: even in bright sunlight. Its long reach gives the farm worker a better safety margin than older models, if large livestock are agitated.
The alphanumeric keypad is flexible for managing all your data capture requirements, out in the thick of ever more varied herds and flocks. The extensive keypad enables you to add and edit session names easily, to keep track of each session. It’s simple and fast to work through your animals with factory predefined settings. Alternatively, save your own favourite settings to easily switch between jobs: on a farm with mixed livestock.

Reads Most EID Livestock Tags

The XRS2 Stick Reader reads all ISO HDX and FDX-B tags fast. Every successful read gives feedback through vibrations in the handle. It’s easy to capture animal data in up to 15 custom data fields available in the large 1 megabyte memory. It’s even customisable with alerts such as instructions to cull individual animals when identified.

The Connectable Stick Reader

Fitted with Bluetooth® wireless technology, your reader connects easily to your Tru-Test Weigh Scale Indicator and lets you share information via your smartphone. You can easily download recorded data using a Windows computer or Apple iOS/Android smartphone.
